I have a questions: Isn't it just the players who get added to the 40 man on Wednesday can’t be removed until at least spring training?
So you need to have player like Albers, Fryer and...

"I think some people take pain in different ways," Twins center fielder Torii Hunter said. "Some people have to play at 100 percent, and Joe may be one of those guys. I've seen it happen. Joe is a...
Again, not saying he not a HOF and a great hitter - but an important part of getting RBI is hitting when runners are on base. If I said he has strike out 4 times out of 7 AB's with the bases loaded,...
Not saying he a bad hitter, he having a great year when nobody is on base. But if you are talking about his decrease in RBI, you can't ignore what he is doing when given the opportunity to drive in...
Another reason for Joe's lack of RBI, would be his .252 average with runner on (career average is .337) and .243 with RISP (career .336)
